Selwyn Percival Rice House

-A A +A
1900, attributed to George F. Barber. 437 Capps St.

This large two-story house addresses its corner site with a wraparound porch. Typical of Barber's catalogue designs, the house is asymmetrical with a combination of hipped and gabled roofs and dormers. Richly ornate balustrades and porch details combine to make a striking Queen Anne dwelling that is picturesque in its small-town setting.
